Bentley creates Flying Spur ‘Arabia Specials’ exclusively for the Middle East

The Middle East markets account for 10 per cent of Bentley’s world sales, so it’s little wonder the British luxury automaker is launching a pair of special edition models exclusively for the region.

The bespoke models are the Continental Flying Spur and the more powerful Flying Spur Speed ‘Arabia’ both being distinguished by some unique exterior and interior bling and a short production run of just 50 vehicles.

Geoff Dowding, Bentley’s Regional Director for Asia and the Middle East explains it, “We have created these exclusive new models for our Arabic customers in recognition of the growing importance of these influential customers.”

Making these Bentleys special is some unique exterior front fender badging, kick plates and an ashtray lid badge, all bearing the Arabia signature.

Providing motivation for the Continental Flying Spur Arabia, is a 560HP flexfuel 6.0-litre W12 engine, which puts power to 14-spoke diamond alloy. The ‘Speed’ model comes with a harder-hitting version of the W12 unit delivering 610HP and rolls on bright silver, 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels that are compatible with optional carbon ceramic brakes.

Among the opulant standard features in both Bentleys are veneered picnic tables behind the front seats inset with vanity mirrors and chrome inlay strips to the door waistrails.

If you must have one and don’t live in Arabia you could try and bribe one of Bentley’s nine dealers in the regions of Dubai, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Jeddah, Riyadh and Al Khobar.
